Centro Infantíl San Pablo and Casa de los Ángeles formally joined forces in 2017 as Centro Infantil de los Ángeles. Both organizations were founded as a safe haven for single moms and serve some of the San Miguel de Allende community’s poorest children and their families. Centro Infantíl de Los Ángeles now includes daycare for infants and toddlers as well as preschool and kindergarten education for young children. This provides each child an incredibly solid foundation for entry into primary school.
This center also provides working parents the comfort of knowing their children are fed, nurtured, and educated in a safe and caring environment as they work to make a better future for themselves as well as their community as a whole.
To date, over 1,800 volunteers from 34 countries have supported the organizations in multiple roles. Centro Infantil de los Ángeles receives NO government support and owes its continued existence and success to the support of OUR committed community. All net proceeds of MTMF events are donated to the charity, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. See Centro Infantil de los Ángeles for more info.
Magic Town Music Festival is a community collaboration of friends and music-lovers in Mexico, the US (through the Love Life Foundation), and Canada. The festival brings a unique, world-class music lineup to San Miguel and a quality and diversity of music “not often heard” in this part of the world! Now, more than ever, this collaboration, in the spirit of international fellowship, respect, and trust, reminds us that our cultures can do great things TOGETHER, “ UNIDOS EN AMISTAD!”
Come have some big fun and help us support this important cause!
